Now I am trying to install boost library to my ubuntu OS. I following the instruction from:
But as I am also a beginner of linux, I could not fully understand what does this means?
tar --bzip2 -xf /path/to/boost_1_54_0.tar.bz2
Which part of the above code should be replaced by my own thing (for example, my own directory)?
The above code seems to extract the pressed file. Actually it can be done without input the above code into the terminal. It cab be done like right-click the file and choose "extract"。
I think if I succeed in installation, I should have the following directory:
In this way, my complier (g++) might be able to include the head files from the library. But now I just do not have anything.
Now I am just hoping to install the library with nothing more to build so that I can run the simple code from the part 4 of that webpage.
Hope I can get some help here. Many thanks ahead!
